Downloading music is illegal. Go HERE (http://mp3.about.com/cs/tipstricks/a/whatslegal.htm) and purge those evil thoughts. ;)

It's not that heavy actually. Have you seen The Breakfast Club? That famous 1980's movie? It's the sort of music you'd expect from that. Pretty cool actually.

Augh tlr stop it! This is one of my all time favourite films The Breakfast Club. I just love it (and Molly Ringwald). All of these films (Pretty In Pink, Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, Footloose, Flashdance etc) all in my teen years. I always feel both happy and sad when I watch them.

I hate this kind of music. Teenage angst ****. Cry me a river, Good Charlotte. You and 3 million other bands just like each other!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif

I prefer hard metal and industrial music but I do love the breakfast club and especially 16 candles, I love it. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

The Breakfast Club is a classic, really http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif Oh what did you remind me now...

And I just remembered one more awesome movie from the 80ties, "Adventures in baby sitting" :D The scenes at the blues club and the subway train are absolute cult :D I almost know those lines by heart :D

Good Charlotte represents everything that's wrong with music today.

I can't say much about them here without the excessive use of... Creative language.

But I will say this. Line up Good Charlotte, Yellowcard, Brand New, and Simple Plan, and you have the same band.

What?!?! Why didn't I see this before?!?! Aargh, that's what I get for not coming online for a couple days...

Any of you that know me know that I am a Good Charlotte obsessed FREAK. I have all three of their albums memorized, know pretty much every little tiny obscure detail about them, and have 360 + pictures of them saved on my hard drive. I've been a huge fan since their first album.

The Young and the Hopeless is a good album, but if you enjoyed that you'll LOVE their new one, the Chronicles of Life and Death. It's Good Charlotte all grown up!

And for those GC haters out there, give them a break. The twins started the band to alleviate the pain of their father abandoning their family on Christmas Eve. And even though they've reached out to their father countless times in life and in their songs (Emotionless, etc.) he still hasn't responded back. They've come a really long way from just two brothers sitting in their room, one with a guitar and one singing. But once Billy, Paul, and Aaron joined, they became known as Good Charlotte - a truly inspiring band that actually reaches out to people, such as with Hold On, the song that has prevented lots of people from suicide.

I truly love this band. Especially Billy... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

"The last thing that he said to me was, "Have a fun time with grandma, mom, and I'll see ya on Monday." And I'll be waiting for Monday the rest of my life."

That music video was depressing.... :(

That music video was depressing.... :( It was...but it got a strong message across - HOLD ON!!

Hold on if you feel like letting go -
Hold on, it gets better than you know -
Don't stop looking, you're one step closer -
Don't stop searching, it's not over -
Hold on -
